Healing more, healing better - today and tomorrow
At age 13, Alexandra beat leukemia, but at a heavy cost. The adverse long-term effects of her treatment mean she will never be able to have children.
The fact that Alexandra is alive at all is a testament to the wonders of modern medicine – but at the same time it illustrates the pressing need to find ways to improve upon existing procedures.
The promise of a unique model
The CHU Sainte-Justine is the only healthcare facility in Canada that brings researchers, physicians, nurses and other professionals together under one roof to offer a continuum of care, education, research, prevention and rehabilitation services directed specifically at expectant mothers and children.
As a result of this unique model, our patients can benefit more quickly from the latest medical breakthroughs.
What the HEALING MORE BETTER campaign is all about:
Seizing the opportunity
In 2016, the CHU Sainte-Justine will unveil new, highly specialized healthcare facilities and a state-of-the-art research centre.
This major advancement will benefit thousands of families across Quebec.
There has never been a better time to help us leverage this tremendous momentum and acquire the resources we need to step up our research activities and discover more and better ways to help and heal an even greater number of children.
